Halo Emerger Variant


Halo Emerger Variant
By: LO Jurgens
Hook: TMC 102Y (Or Tyers Choice)
Size: 15 -19
Thread: Brown 8/0
Tag: Opal Mirage Tinsel
Shuck: Light Gray Antron Yarn Fibers
Abdomen: Gray Olive Superfine Dubbing

Notes: Gary LaFontaine based this unusual design on his underwater observations of hatching mayflies. One of the keys to its effectiveness, he notes, is the orange tuft, and this component should be preserved if the tail and body colors are changed to match other hatches.
